Edit Storyline The lonely teenager Brendan finds his former girlfriend Emily dead in the entrance of a tunnel of sewage and recalls her phone call two days ago, when she said to him that she was in trouble.
Taglines: A detective story. Edit Did You Know? Brendan explains that he knows Laura set Emily up to take the fall for Laura's theft of the ninth brick, then manipulated Emily into meeting Tug, who panicked and killed her after she told him he was the father of her unborn child.
Brendan has written a note to the school administration stating that the tenth brick is in Laura's locker. Laura vindictively tells Brendan that Emily did not want to keep the baby because she did not love the father, and that Emily was three months pregnant when she died, meaning the unborn child was his.
He had discovered Hammett's work through an interview of the Coen brothers about their gangster film, Miller's Crossing.
Reading Hammett's novels inspired him to make his own contribution. Of the initial writing process he remarked "it was really amazing how all the archetypes from that detective world slid perfectly over the high school types".
He also wanted to disrupt the visual traditions that came from the genre. Once he started making Brick , he found it "very much about the experience of being a teenager to me".
Johnson estimated the minimal amount of money for which he could make the film, and asked friends and family for backing.
Although the film was shot in 20 days, Johnson spent a great deal of time beforehand refining the script and three months rehearsing with the cast.
He was initially nervous working with a professional cast and crew for the first time but as soon as he started filming, this feeling went away and he had a good experience.
Johnson shot the film in his hometown of San Clemente, California on 35 mm film stock. Much of the film takes place at San Clemente High School , which he attended.
He enlisted current students to work on the film, shooting on weekends. The cinematographer was Steve Yedlin , a film school friend who had been involved with the project since the script was written.
For the telephone booth scenes, Johnson and crew filmed deep in the San Clemente suburbia. The same sign for the cross streets of Sarmentoso and Camino del Rio still stands.
However, the phone booth itself was a prop the production department added in for the film. The drain tunnel from the film is located just down the street from the San Clemente High School football field and goes under the freeway by the Pico exit off-ramp.
Johnson had difficulty finding a run-down house for the Pin's base of operations. The production found an appropriate house, but only had a week until it was demolished to rebuild on its lot.
The basement was a set that they built, but the Pin's kitchen and living room still exists at the Blarney Castle bed and breakfast.
Johnson also had difficulty finding a mansion for the party scene until, with one day left to find the location, a former Telecom executive and eccentric millionaire allowed them to shoot in his place which was still under construction.
The big mansion was packed from floor to ceiling with pay phones dating back to the s. The majority of the film's special effects were cheaply and efficiently produced using practical and in-camera effects.
To achieve this, the desired effect was filmed in reverse order. The garbage bag began over the camera and was pulled away during filming, as de Ravin walked backwards into the tunnel.
This footage was then cut into a scene in which a garbage bag was simply pulled over Gordon-Levitt's head. Filming a car driving slowly in reverse, then playing the footage backwards at a higher speed gives the illusion of a car quickly approaching as the camera darts in front of it stylishly.
Certain edits were also introduced to the film to time footage to different dialogue, adding certain information and leaving other information out.
These edits are noticeable, as the actors' mouths are not always moving in sync with their dialogue. One particular scene, in which de Ravin's character floated toward the camera, used a green screen , but it was edited out of the film before its completion.
The original cut of the film ran over two hours, although it was edited down to minutes for the Sundance Film Festival.
An additional 7 minutes were cut before the theatrical release, including a shot of Zehetner's naked back as she put her shirt back on after she and Gordon-Levitt's character had sex.
According to a post by Johnson on his own forums, he felt that the nudity felt wrong in the context of the film, and that he preferred to leave the degree of intimacy ambiguous, although he occasionally finds himself second-guessing that decision.
The score to Brick was composed by Johnson's cousin, Nathan Johnson , with additional support and music from The Cinematic Underground.
The score harkens back to the style, feel and overall texture of noir films. It features traditional instruments such as the piano, trumpet and violin, and also contains unique and invented instruments such as the wine-o-phone, metallophone , tack pianos , filing cabinets , and kitchen utensils , all recorded with one microphone on an Apple PowerBook.
Since Nathan Johnson was in England during most of the production process, the score was composed almost entirely over Apple iChat , with Rian playing clips of the movie for Nathan, who would then score them.
The two met in New York City to mix the soundtrack. In addition to Johnson's score, it contains songs by The Velvet Underground , Anton Karas and Kay Armen as well as the big band version of " Frankie and Johnny " performed by Bunny Berigan and a full unedited performance of " The sun whose rays are all ablaze " by Nora Zehetner.
Johnson has confirmed that various elements in the film were influenced by Twin Peaks creator David Lynch.
Special features include: selection of deleted and extended scenes with introductions by Johnson; audition footage featuring Nora Zehetner and Noah Segan; and feature audio commentary with Rian Johnson, Nora Zehetner, Noah Segen, producer Ram Bergman , production designer Jodie Tillen, and costume designer Michele Posch.
Brick premiered in the United States on April 7, , in two theaters. It opened to United Kingdom audiences on May 12, on a limited number of screens.
The consensus states: "This entertaining homage to noirs past has been slickly and compellingly updated to a contemporary high school setting.
Roger Ebert of the Chicago Sun-Times gave the film three out of four stars, stating "[It works] in the sense that the classic Hollywood noirs worked: The story is never clear while it unfolds, but it provides a rich source of dialogue, behavior and incidents.
Peter Travers of Rolling Stone also gave the film a positive review, explaining "A spoof would have been easy.
Instead, Johnson plunges off the deep end, risking ridicule by shaping this spellbinder with grit and gravitas. Haas and Mr.
Gordon-Levitt at least succeed in evoking the outlines of their characters. But the film's ham-handed reliance on period argot not only wears thin; it keeps the characters, such as they are, at a chilly distance.
Brick ranks th on Empire magazine's list of the greatest movies of all time. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
